  • You must use a stencil or stencils (any brand) in your project(s).
  • You can enter as many projects as you wish as long as they are in separate blog posts.
  • You must display the challenge graphic below in your post and link back to this post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).
  • Link up by January 31st, 11:55 p.m. Pacific (GMT-8).

A gentle reminder: This is a non-card mixed media challenge, so please don't link up cards (we've got other challenges where you can enter your cards). You must also use a stencil (or stencils) -- any brand or a homemade one -- in your project(s). If it's not obvious to us that you used a stencil, your entry may be deleted


  1. These are just stunning, I am hoping to get into the groove again and get back into mixed media.xx

  2. WOW fabulou and stunning projects from the team! Creating something art project beside cards and tags is a challenge for me :)
    May I combine challenges? For instance, can I do Stencil and CASEPloration?

    1. Yes, you certainly can combine challenges, Helen. You're not limited to creating just cards on the challenges we have on the STAMP blog :o)

  3. Great inspiration ladies. Love Carol's reindeer. Hugz

  4. Thanks for another wonderful challenge and the great inspirations too Karen x


We love hearing from fellow crafters. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
